Can A Gas Can Be Art? Can It?

So cool!

My obsession for gas cans and cushions is a problem. The only saving grace is I do have some sort of money governor when it comes to crazy prices. This gas can has tested the limits big time. I LOVE the graphics, and appears to still be useful. I could use it for all my yard items with a mixture of oil and gas.


And it would look cool sitting in the garage. But. at over 300 bucks? I am not sure gas cans are art yet? Oil cans, sure, but gas cans? Then again, art is where you find it and how you use it. YOU CAN SEE IT HERE ON EBAY

    It’s cool and collectible, but not $323.99 worth. Save the money for WECATCHEM’s fresh water cooled V8.

    That is cool for sure. It amazing shape for age….like most of US!
    Amoco marketed that “white gas” that you were to use in two cycle outboards back in the day and so they put out several of those cans….I have one….somewhere….

    this one is over priced though.

    The can itself is art with wonderful art applied to it. Double cool. I know that’s probably not helping.

    The outboard part in the header I recognize now since I just bought a Challenger motor. But why am I looking for a CC Kit Boat to go with it ? It’s a disease.

    Me thinks it’s nice ‘Art’ – – Especially with the rich patina on the wooden handle and the vivid eye catching graphics- – And this piece of ‘Art’ is pleasing to look at and also has a useful purpose – – To buy or not to buy, that i$ $till the que$tion – –

    I note he specifies ‘best offer’. You could try that as unlikely there will be a taker at anywhere near his price. Inexperienced sellers frequently start high for fear of getting ripped off but they sometimes forego realism for dreaming.
